Mission

The mission of the goodman2 institute is the exploration and development of a higher order reality principle – an aesthetic science that unifies art, nonlinear science, philosophy and culture. To this end the Institute sponsors dialogues among holistic thinkers and practitioners, including artists, mathematicians, physicists, social ecologists, environmentalists, economists, depth psychologists, systems scientists and cultural critics, to explore shared aesthetic patterns and their cultural implications.
